Things that must be accomplished this weekend:
- Grade papers and post grades online
- Pack up stuff from our old apartment
- Move into new apartment
- Assorted cleaning projects related to moving in and moving out
But most importantly: I must study for my graduate exams which are in TWO WEEKS.
TWO WEEKS UNTIL COMPREHENSIVE EXAMS. TWO WEEKS UNTIL MY BRAIN COMPLETELY EXPLODES WITH INFORMATION THAT I'VE BEEN RETAINING FOR EIGHT YEARS. It's enough to make me all CAPSY (to steal a phrase from the Fug Girls).
Fortunately, I did get a bit of direction on what to study for my literature question. The key words: theories of comedy and Joyce. And if I'm feeling especially clever, add a dash of Althusser or Bakhtin.
Sweet Mary and Joseph. I have to write an essay about Joyce. And sound intelligent enough to warrant a graduate degree.
I should study some more, but first I need to know something.
Answer me this:
I hope you thought long and hard about your answer.
